Horn sound like a duck?

The stock horn on the 9er isn't that great, but mine sounded like a duck with a sore throat. When I went to disconnect the wires to check the connections with a voltmeter one of the wires pulled right out of the connector. Fixed that and now it honks as good as new.

Yeah, but you do that when you're not on a bike also.

I like hopping in front of jerks, and catching a stop light, then grab a fist full of throttle while the light is still red...they love the smell of fresh exhaust being pumped into their car. The sound of the MIVV pipes at 7k+RPMS is also a delight from behind
